Merz Pharmaceuticals manufactures a dermal filler by the name of Belotero Balance that is approved by the FDA, so for people interested in using fillers to achieve a wrinkle-free face, this is another option. This Hyaluronic acid product is injected into facial tissue to smooth wrinkles and folds, especially around the nose and mouth. It works by temporarily adding volume to the face and restoring a smoother appearance to the face since the wrinkles and folds are eliminated. Remember that your wrinkles are not going away forever, but the effect can last for several months. In some patients, as many as 6 months.
Obviously, only a surgeon after examining your face can determine what will work for you, but in the study conducted prior to approval, you will need at least two injections to get that smooth look with all wrinkles gone. This product works similar to Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, and a few others.
San Diego cosmetic surgeon Gilbert Lee is one of the early adopters and he says, “BELOTERO offers a great alternative for filling around the eyes and fine wrinkles of the face. The nature of the product allows spreading of the product without fear of lumpiness, one of the common complications of fillers.” He has also observed that compared to other dermal fillers available, this filler has much lower rates of complications.
